I guess it is time to start looking toward the future of this team. Fansided already has released their first mock draft of the season a couple of days ago. Right now the Chargers are just sitting outside the top 10 in the draft with the 11th pick. Here is who they have for the Chargers selection at number 11:
11. San Diego Chargers – Sam Montgomery|DE/LSU
Last season the Chargers took Melvin Ingram and by taking Montgomery this year they’ll have two of the countries top defensive pass rushers on their line. San Diego has struggled to get pressure on opposing quarterbacks this year but with Montgomery, those problems should disappear
Defensive end/outside linebacker is not exactly a position the Chargers should be focusing with the first pick of the draft. We need to fix that offensive line! That has to be our number 1 focus in the offseason. Philip Rivers has no confidence in the boys up front. Our running game still has not had a 100-yard rusher the whole season! Fix that offensive line!
If we don’t select someone for the offensive line with the first pick, then we need to go for a cornerback.
We could even use a middle linebacker to take over for Takeo Spikes’ spot. Could we see another Samoan in the middle of our defense? Manti Te’o from Notre Dame?
Our defensive line is pretty solid right now. We have Corey Liuget and Vaughn Martin starting and we also have Kendall Reyes. In the middle we have Cam Thomas and hopefully we can bring back Aubrayo Franklin for another season.
With a top 10 pick, which we keep sliding closer to, we need to select the best player on the board. We will have to fill the other holes on the roster with free agency or later in the draft.
